Birds Eye View Maps
June 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
More than 1,800 Panoramic or Bird’s Eye View Maps of communities throughout the United States and Canada (mostly from the northeastern states) were produced between the 1840’s and 1920’s. They give a pictorial record of cities and towns during the post-Civil War period that depicts the general life of a community – as would be seen at an angle only a bird could view. These maps include drawings of 3-D structures, roads and streets, bridges, distant views, trees and fields, streams and rivers. Come explore the wonders of Bird’s Eye View Maps focusing on one drawn by George E. Norris in 1892.
Presentation will be held at the Skowhegan History House Museum & Research Center, 66 Elm Street, Skowhegan, Maine and is free to the public. Refreshments will be offered and donations are appreciated.
